The Day After/Before Camp NaNoWriMo

July Camp NaNoWriMo is over! Long live August Camp NaNoWriMo!

July 2011 – WINNING!

Well… maybe.

As you can tell by the vast wasteland of posts from last month, I managed to win NaNo, but not a whole heck of a lot else. As an experiment in merging NaNo and Real Life, it was pretty much an abject failure.

Although I did hit 50,000 words. (woo!)

But it does leave me in an odd position for next month’s NaNo. I’m not sure if I want to try again or if I should hold off on doubling down till next year’s camp. I do have a rough idea of what I’m going to write and my Muses are definitely raring to go, but my Blogging Muses are feeling abandoned.

On the not-writing front, I failed miserably at being an adult, but I did manage to maintain some semblance of self-sufficiency. I have a feeling that if I just tried a little harder I could pull it off this time around.

Which is more or less the story of my life– It’s hard not to look back and think a little more effort would have done the trick. Whether or not that’s accurate, I have no idea. (Unless someone invents time-travel, I’ll never know– or is it I’d already know? I hate time travel conjugation. :P)

Right now I figure it can’t hurt to try, but I think I may end up focusing less on hitting 50k and more on making writing a part of my every-day life. Not sure if that goes against the spirit of the competition or not…
